Guests: Jill Wayne from The Center for Hearing, Speech and Language ( ) was here to receive a check for $10,000 from both the Arapahoe and S.W. Sertoma clubs, the monies raised from the recent joint golf tournament. Needless to say, she was very elated. John Cullen and Tom Guetz from S.W. Sertoma were here to present their share.

Fines:   Randy Smith was fined for “looking good”…passed (he changed his appearance to look a tad younger). Tim fined Peter for being a difficult act to follow (Tim filled in for Peter last week).

Announcements:  The South Restaurant will serve our lunches with a varied American menu starting on Oct 4. Jeannie Cossey came to observe Leslie on how to handle the guys. She will be back next week and should have it all under control when she takes over the duties in October. Leslie’s last week will be next Thursday, Oct 27th.

Jim tried to soften the blow of announcing ahead of time that next week, he will be passing out new invoices. There are still several members that owe for last quarter so let’s get paid up.

Sertoman of the Day:   Dick Mason gave an update on his life and a few other tid bits. Dick, a Life Member, was born 11/12/45 in Quincy, Ill. The Mississippi River was next to his hometown. Three High Schools in town and he didn't graduate from any of them, he even tried to go to the all girls school.

After being suspended from high school one to many times, he joined the Marine Corp. While in the Marines, he received his GED. Dick served almost four years and was an E-5 when discharged. He has a trip to Viet Nam and Hawaii on his military resume.

After getting out of the service, Dick married JoAnn 43 years ago, they met in study hall. He worked a little, then went back to Glendale Community College in Phoenix, where he graduated and then got a scholarship to DU. That plus the GI bill and his hard work got him through school by March of '72. Now a CPA (that does not stand for Cleaning, Pressing & Alterations), his firm was acquired and he has moved on to bigger and better things.

The Mason’s have three kids, sons Brian and Brandt, along with daughter Brandy. There is one Grandkid and he lives in California. Rick Jacobus brought Dick into the club about 22 years ago and he has served in a number of offices and is a Past President and Gold Coat recipient. Listen to DickMason.mp3

Program:  Paul Houston is a speaker for Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol initiative on the November ballet this year.

Paul is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and a Russian-speaking Naval intelligence veteran. After exiting the Navy, he earned an MBA in Finance from the University of Denver Daniels College of Business. For the past 20 years he has been president of Results Management Consultants and Rivalscape, a management consulting firm he founded that specializes in the field of corporate competitive intelligence and counterintelligence. A lifelong Republican, Paul supports Amendment 64 because he considers marijuana prohibition a wasteful and futile big government program. He has lived in Colorado since 1979, where he raised four children and now has five grandchildren.


The initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol, Amendment 64, will appear on the November 2012 ballot in Colorado.
In summary, Amendment 64:
• makes the personal use, possession, and limited home-growing of marijuana legal for adults 21 years of age and older;
• establishes a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol; and
• allows for the cultivation, processing, and sale of industrial hemp.
In particular, Amendment 64 removes all legal penalties for personal possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and for the home-growing of up to six marijuana plants, similar to the number allowed under current medical marijuana laws, in an enclosed locked space.
The initiative creates legal marijuana establishments – retail stores, cultivation facilities, product manufacturing facilities, and testing facilities – and directs the Department of Revenue to regulate a system of cultivation, production (including infused products), and distribution. Under the provisions of the measure, the Department will license marijuana establishments at the state level, and should it fail to act, localities will be permitted to issue such licenses. Localities will have the right to ban marijuana establishments through either their elected representative bodies, or through referred or citizen-initiated ballot measures.
